Origin of the Right Pulmonary Artery from the Ascending Aorta
Report of a Surgically Corrected Case
A case of anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta with an associated patent ductus arteriosus has been described. Successful complete surgical correction was accomplished after physiologic and cineangiocardiographic studies had established the diagnosis. Postoperative evaluation demonstrated a return to nearly normal physiologic values. The unparalleled value of selective angiocardiography in the anatomic assessment of cardiovascular lesions is emphasized.
